Random, but to this day I still have no idea where the "plox" for "plz" and all it's variants came about. Ahem, anyway! More crochet progress photos:



Pattern: Easy Scarf | Hook: J (Clover) | Yarn: Lily Sugar 'n Cream (19983 Renegade)

I have to be honest with the scarf above that I'm both happy and not-so-happy with how it's turning out? The jury is still out on whether or not I'm liking the required/suggested hook for the project, but I have a feeling that my leanings of not liking it have to do with the yarn I'm using and the way the hook is made. I also think that the grip Clover makes their hooks with is affecting how I crochet, but I'm afraid to switch to my Boye or Bates H hooks for fear that there will be a drastic narrowing in the work. The scarf starts off as the 6½" in width that the pattern states for the measurements, but measuring it across again just now, the scarf is at 7". I haven't gained stitches so I'm chalking it up knitting too loosely, which nods back to waffling about the idea of switching hooks.



Pattern: Easy Scarf | Hook: H (Boye) | Yarn: Red Heart Soft Prints (9935 Waterscape)

There isn't much to say with this scarf. I haven't had any problems with the hook, yarn, or the work getting bigger or smaller (which leads me to believe the troubles I'm having with the other scarf is a hook/yarn combo). I think the next scarf I make with this pattern, I'll try with one of my H hooks in a solid color because I'd also like to figure out how to count rows (I don't know why that's so elusive to me, but counting rows in crochet seems more difficult vs. knitting) which it's difficult to see with these multi-colored yarns I picked, lol. I suppose the MSU colors I picked for [livejournal.com profile] mangobaby716 will do the trick.

Since I've been rather consistent/regular in posting to DW, I'm trying to get my act together in being more "modly" with [community profile] pennydreadfultv. I changed the layout and made tweaks to change the color scheme, etc. Additionally, I've also set up Google Alerts so I can be notified of stuff relating to the show and can post it when I can.

Uh, what else? Well, it's Tuesday so I'm looking forward to watching Sons of Anarchy tonight and crocheting, but I'm even more excited about tonight because many of the cast members will be on Conan for their first group interview! :D Uh, but to be really honest I'm only kinda watching for Charlie and to hear his voice, cuz damn. He just has a nice one, m'kay? XD
